The Yellowstone River Valley is home to about 110 growers who are part of Sidney Sugars. Jim Olson takes us on a tour to see how the company turns 32,000 acres of beets into a million tons of sugar.
Sidney Sugars Agricultural Manager, Duane Peters, says a 32.5 tons per acre crop is expected in eastern Montana / western North Dakota this year. That is slightly above average.
The Sidney Sugars harvest is about 70% complete and should wrap up in about ten days.
